Glory in Rejection

Jesus life on earth is bookended by rejection. Rejection by the Inn Keeper at birth, rejection by His own disciples at death, but in rejection there is glory.

Jesus life on earth is bookended by rejection

– Rejection by the Inn Keeper at birth

– Rejection by His own disciples at death

But in rejection there is glory

His birth while humble was:

– So wonderful….that a single star shined brightly

– So wonderful…that wise men came from a far

– So wonderful…that the people of this earth to this day are still inspired by that holy night so long ago His death while burial provides:

– Hope…because of the prophecy fulfilled by His crucifixion

– Hope….because of the victory of His resurrection

– Hope….because of the forgiveness afforded by His sacrifice

Jesus proves to us that there is glory in rejection

  • So take heart…… His suffering was not in vain
  • So take heart ……His body was broken for a purpose
  • So take heart…….His blood was spilled for goodness

Jesus life was on earth is bookended by rejection:

Why?

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16KJV)

For in Jesus where there is rejection there is glory.
